Front wheel bearing

Took my truck to get tires, and when I went to pick it up the shop told me I had a front wheel bearing going bad. I was going to change the rotor anyway considering its toast, so my question is if there is any special tool (besides the spindle nut tool) I need. or any extra parts I should replace while im there?
ex. do I need a bearing separator or anything?
what would I need for seals?

2wd 4wd? Not sure if that matters on an OBS. Dually or not?

I know on my SD DRW 2wd, it's a regular hub, with two bearings, an inner grease seal, and races. I pulled and repacked them like I do trailer hubs.

If you're in there, I would replace both bearings ... inner and outer, races, and seal) on each hub. Cheers!

I check bearings, but usually they are ok. Seals, heck no. New every time.
